Heath's Joy is Greenwich's Woe's

Heath continued their fine away form as the left lowly Greenwich Borough with all 3 points at the start of a busy couple of weeks.

Heath lined up exactly as they did against Phoenix Sports the week previous and dominated against lowly Greenwich Borough but it wasn't all plain sailing.

Luke Robinson was looking to make his return but pulling up in the warm up mean a last minute reorganisation back to the line up and shape the previous week.

Early signs were good for Heath on a difficult surface for the players Kane Louis had an early chance that was brilliantly tipped over by Greenwich keeper Thomas McGill, with Callum Saunders and Lewis Finney both just off target all in the opening 5 minutes.

It was no surprise that the opening goal came soon after but it was an unlikely scorer as Josh Spinks claimed his first goal of the season on 9 minutes stabbing the ball home after Andrew Dalhouse house had sent it dangerously towards goal.

Greenwich 0-1 Heath

Heath continued dominating the match with the home side showing frustration and picking up a couple of yellow cards in the process, Karly Akehurst drew a fine diving save from the keeper who was equally rewarded with a goal kick from the referee.

From controlling the match Heath were hit with a sucker punch 5 minutes before half time as Greenwich broke fast and moved the ball from left to right where the impressive Tyresse Walters had time to pick his spot bending the ball into bottom far corner past Josh Heyburn.

Greenwich 1-1 Heath

Heath came out of the blocks quickly in the second half after going level despite controlling the first half and the secondhalf was only 3 minutes old when Heath were back in pole position, Karly Akehurst found Andrew Dalhouse and he made no mistake firing into the corner for his 9th goal in 9 games.

Greenwich 1-2 Heath

Heath continued to press and if it wasn't for the impressive young keeper Andrew Dalhouse would have got a second when he broke the back line and forced the keeper into a fine one on one save.

It didn't take long though for the 3rd goal to come as on 54 minutes Karly Akehurst again turned provider finding Callum Saunders who kept calm and brilliantly lifted the ball over the advancing keeper.

Greenwich 1-3 Heath

Greenwich to there credit kept their heads and continued to work as a team and were inches from being back in the game on 56 minutes with an effort from distance that beat Josh Heyburn but not the bar coming off the underside and then Heath could clear.

Alex Laing had been lively all afternoon and was unlucky not to get on the score sheet dragging a effort wide after a good flowing move and then not being able to convert when under pressure after Andrew Dalhouse fizzed the ball across goal.

With 73 minutes played only a flying save stopping the ball going into the top corner prevented Max Miller scoring a rare header, the save was in vain however as the resulting corner was sent in by Callum Saunders and Nathan Cooper rose highest to head into the corner off the foot of the post.

Greenwich 1-4 Heath

With the game as good as won Heath made a couple of changes with both Vincent Follea and Alusine Bangura coming on for Kane Louis and Alex Laing and Heath happy to see out the remaining 15 minutes, more chances came as Callum Saunders will feel he should have scored with just the keeper to beat but the closing defender seemed to do just enough.

Full Time Greenwich 1-4 Heath

Man of the Match - Byron Napper - showing what a fine summer signing he has been often being asked to cover out of position but never looking uncomfortable and always in control.

Afterwards Manager Shaun Saunders said "I'm again delighted to pick up 3 points on the road on a difficult pitch, I felt we controlled the game well and if we were more clinical we could have had double the amount of goals, we move into a busy period and it's great as a group we are playing well.
